I am currently on 485 visa. I was convicted in traffic offence, can i apply for 885?


I was convicted in traffic offence in 2005 for drunk driving. The case is over now. I had applied for 485 visa in 2009 and I got it. Now I am planning to apply for 885 visa . will my traffic offence affect their decision on my PR?
